What happens if I don't finish my community service?

Postby garret » Tue Mar 13, 2012 9:40 am

I have 58 hours of community service due by march 19th & it's impossible for me to finish w/ school & works hours... What happens if I have not completed it? Can I pay it off? I don't want to go to jail. :( it's only over a failure to appear & a speeding ticket. I live in California.

Unless you have been completely slack, you can usually get an extension, explain your condition, you will need to have shown "good faith effort". If you have less than half finished, you better find a way to squeeze it in, you may have to explain to your boss. There is always the politicians way out, find someone you know who has an organization, volunteer there, do little on nothing and turn that in that.
